An emergency order to help keep San Francisco restaurants stay afloat went into effect today.

 

Mayor London Breed has announced  that delivery apps must cap their restaurant fees at 15%. Fees typically range from 10% to 30%.  

 

Grubhub is railing against the plan. They sent an email to their customers saying this will increase their fees by $5–10 per order and immediately cripple their  delivery service. The company asked their customers to contact the Mayor’s office to oppose the order. City officials say the cap will last through the remainder of the emergency or until businesses are allowed reopen for dine-in service--whichever comes first.
